MEET THE OBAMACARE ENROLLEES WHO MIGHT LOSE THEIR HEALTH CARE "The Supreme Court will issue a ruling this month on a lawsuit engineered by conservative activists alleging that a brief phrase in the law -- 'exchange established by the state' -- means subsidies can only be provided to individuals residing in states that set up their own health insurance exchanges. Should the justices side with Obamacare's critics, Hines would be one of an estimated 6.4 million people in 34 states whose subsidies will disappear. Many will be forced to drop their health insurance because of heightened cost." [Jeffrey Young and Sam Stein, HuffPost]
